PR Supporters Don’t Understand The PR Struggle

By Simon Templar

My vote has already been won by PR. And I can say of the same to most of you reading this. But the war for votes is NOT for your vote. Neither is it for my vote. The PR struggle is for the votes other than ours. Get it? With just your votes and mine, PR is not going to form the next government.

On 7 August 2009, I wrote an article titled 'PR Will Not Form The Next Government'. As expected, many readers were not happy with the contents. That's how the supporters of PR are. You write good about PR and you will be cheered like a hero. You write bad about PR, be prepared for their wrath.

I may have been sumbat-ed from all corners but I don't blame those who left their comments at this blog or at Malaysia Today (where my articles are sometimes deemed worthy to be posted up there). After all, PR is their last bastion of hope for a change and nobody likes to have their hopes put up in smoke.

What is depressing is when I read the comments, it is clear that these readers do not understand the true struggle of PR. Many went on and on about the evils of UMNO, PDRM, MACC, Najib, Khir Toyo… Some said that the PR leaders may be weak and incapable but still can't be worse off than BN's. Like I don't already fucking know that. Others claim that PR will win because BN is racist and corrupted. How simple minded! I am sure that many of those who commented actually belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. I sincerely hope the number of readers who do not understand the PR struggle is restricted to those who commented negatively. Or else PR is in deep shit.
